Remembering Skip Haynes
In 2015 I was fortunate enough to meet and spend some time with Skip Haynes, the musician and artist best known for the iconic song Lake Shore Drive. His band, Aliotta Haynes and Jeremiah, formed in Chicago in 1970 and were a stable of the folk/rock scene for years.
At our lunch, held atop the John Hancock Tower overlooking the real Lake Shore Drive, Skip exhumed a love of music, artistry and his accomplishments. He marveled at the song’s staying power and meaning to so many people, including myself.
Skip passed away peacefully this week. We will remember him always.
